After a long day of shopping head over to one of Doncaster’s many eateries or live music venues if you fancy a bit more of a lively atmosphere. If you fancy some tasty international street food, The Wool Market is a great choice and if you are after more of a pub/bar environment, then venues like The Queen Crafthouse, The Salutation, Doncaster Brewery and Tap, Hallgate, O’Donegans and The Leopard are all great choices. For an alternative night out at the theatre, look no further than Cast and Doncaster Little Theatre where you can watch some of the best performances around. The possibilities really are endless in Doncaster.
